Batman: Dark Knight

      Wow. I can’t say enough about how great this film was. Instead of breaking it down too much I want to introduce you to one of my favorite blogs called Cinemagogue. Cinemagogue is a small group ministry of Mars Hill Church in Seattle and a class that breaks down films, the pulpit of our age, and sheds insights into what is taking place every day inside the theaters and homes in the world. Cinemagogue is a play on the words cinema and synagogue. The class watches a film, the pastor teaches on it, and then they discuss it. Pastor James Harleman breaks down so much of the history and thoughts of Batman in his blog this week. Listening to the blog posts at Cinemagogue reminds me of sitting in my film classes in college. I think this small group is a brilliant idea. People today love film and enjoy talking about movies. If you are ever interested in going to see a movie remember that Friday is for Film here at Leading Up and I would love to go to the movies with anyone interested. This Friday’s options are Step Brothers with Will Ferrell, American Teen, and The X-Files: I Want To Believe.

      If you enjoy Pastor Harleman’s exposition I would recommend that you listen to and read his commentary on the film Juno and the role that relationships and men played in the film. Amazing stuff. There is really more than meets the eye in films these days people.
